    Might be relevant for this thread, but to prevent unnecessary scrolling, I hid it in a spoiler - some general information to protect you from scams:

    • NEVER trade through mail. Use the trade option at the stall.
    • ALWAYS check a trade thoroughly before accepting.
    • PATIENCE. Don’t let yourself get baited because you want that item so bad. If you get scammed, you can lose millions worth of items or gold.
    • KNOWLEDGE. Know how trades work, because some scammers will ‘explain’ you how it works. “Wow what a nice guy, I didn’t know there were 4 steps to a trade.” No there’s not. If you have doubts, check the forums or ask some other people.
    • DOUBT MEANS NO. Got doubts on whether the person you’re trading with is legit? Call off the deal and try again some other time.
    • Don’t listen to reasons why you would have to send something upfront. Do straight up deals.
    • Check the Avabel Hall of Shame forum for known scammers. Run into more scammers? If you are 100% sure that you did, report them as well please. FYI: forgetting taxes is a common honest mistake, so don’t slander people’s name unless they thoroughly deserve it.
    • PREMIUM TICKETS are the most prone to scam, since they can’t be traded through the regular trade option, and thus can only be exchanged by mailing it. If you want to get your hands on a premium ticket, try to get your hands on 2 Weird Copper Coins (WCC) and synthesize the ticket from those; WCC can be traded.


    Here are some tactics I have encountered with scamming:

    • Setting up a deal where you have to send your item first. The scammer will run off with it as soon as you did.
    • Setting up a deal where the scammer asks for an item first as collateral, in case you would be a scammer. He then says he would send you his item, you send your item, and he would give the collateral back. Do NOT do collaterals; the scammer will simply run off with it.
    • Making agreements about selling an item to you through the trade option, and then putting up an item with a slightly different name. For example, I ran into a player called ohkgPY (congrats on being crucified in this guide) who baited me with a very low price for sharp crystals. When I checked the trade, I noticed he put up sharp crystal pieces instead (which are worth 20% of a crystal). In his case, it wasn’t an honest mistake.
    • Tricking you into thinking a deal has more steps, or any other nonsense to take advantage of you.

    Yet another scammer.
    IGN: Laya123
    Guild: constantly hopping guilds
    This scammer tries the usual: convince you to pay first, and even for an item she doesn't have. Lame excuses as to why she can't show the avatar ("I can't access my storage "). Already a pretty well known scammer on ch2. Spread the word.

    My name is M.O.V.E a screenshot of conversation where yuki really said to her friends and guildmates that she really scammed my 10M that i lend her, we've been playing for months together and shared stuffs (since we were acolytes) . So i entrusted her my gold and now she's running away. I WONT LET THIS HAPPEN TO OTHERS so please guys! Help me to ban this "Yuki / Yui / Yukio / LUNA" accounts. Same owner.
    Also, Stop saying that I'm an idiot for lending her that much gold. That's not the point here :) Thank you!

    P.S. There's no screenshot taken when we were actually trading (because this is my first MMO and i didn't knew that this kind of stuffs could really happen in the game) so sorry but i will do my best to prove myself. ^_^

    If it's referring to Game Masters I'm pretty sure they have all the right to ban someone. Check out their 'Penalties Policy' on their official webpage. Banning someone from the game is a Level 5 kind of penalty so unless the person has interfered with the business of Avabel Team, they will not ban that person. In the case of Yuki, I don't think the GMs will ban her even if you report her. At most a Level 4 penalty, which is permanent chat restrictions and any of the below:
    ・Ban on the usage of trade and other related functions
    ・Ban the usage of chat functions
    ・Initializing part of the character data or more
    ・Initializing all characters and all data
    ・Forfeiture of owned items
    ・Forfeiture of virtual currencies

    I would like to yellow flag this person as a potential scammer.
    IGN: Sygan'
    Class: Female/Gunslinger
    Guild: last was in Fairytail™ but jumps
    This person I've bought items for in the past (I'm nice to guild mates and do freebies)
    But anytime I've refused to buy or refuse business he/she immediately ejects me from party. Today they asked me to sell a prem. avatar and give them the gold I refused twice and on second attemp they removed me from party. I cleaned up two SSs to provided proof as stated above. Also It hasn't been tampered w/ other than cropping out background and lining up our convo.

    Deal w/ this person at own risk when it comes to ticket related business.

    I thought this was abit shady image.jpg (feel free to remove this post if its unrelated or violates rules of this thread)

    A while back, I received 5 ccp from a guildmate. I asked, he mailed me them immediately, and then I replied "MWAHAHA, now I'll never pay you back!!!" to scare him and then "jk ;)". After that, I told him that he should be more careful with how and whom he makes deals with. His actions and his low level suggested that he was a new player. He told me that he played Avabel for only 4 days, and also I think he's new to the whole mmorpg thing. I even sent him a mail stating that I owed [ign of guildmate] 5 ccp or to pay him back in some other way; he called it a "receipt". I'm 50% happy and 50% scared to make deals with other players. Happy because they found me, an honest player. I don't mean to sound pretentious or anything but yeah, I'm one of the good guys here. Scared because what about about the person on the other side? Are they a respectable player, or are they just another scammer?

    this person was both annoying and extremely obvious to spot
    name:ZacknCindy
    so this girl came begging when i was at the stall a few months back,and asked for an avatar.Now,i try to help people,so i gave her my seconhand Pure E.
    The next day,she asked me to buy her a Full Cutlass.I of course disagreed and then she started begging like a BABY.She then started to spam me an when i ignored her,she started to threaten me.I dunno what she was trying to pull off here,so i cut off contact with her.
